on the campus of the massachusetts institute of technology, a prestigious university here in the boston area, specifically in cambridge, there was a shooting of a police officer. the officer was killed. there was also a carjacking in cambridge. there was a chase. two individuals have been arrested in watertown, massachusetts. there has been a big police presence, both local law enforcement and the federal bureau of investigation, the fbi which would suggest that this is not your average local crime, even though the shooting of a police officer is taken sle seriously. the fbi would not necessarily be involved in the manhunt for somebody who shot a police officer. the fbi has said, they've acknowledged to cnn, they're trying to figure out if there's any connection whatsoever with what is going on this evening on the campus of m.i.t. and in watertown where the individuals were apprehended and what happened earlier on monday a couple blocks from me. i'm going to go to drew griffin on the scene in watertown where these arrests have taken place. drew, what can you tell us? >> reporter: we just got
